British Airways’ London City to Venice
Carl McNally, BA Cityflyer’s GM Operations and Engineering, accompanied by members of the airline’s commercial team, cut this impressive cake celebrating the new route from London City Airport to Venice.
- British Airways Cityflyer, the London City (LCY) based subsidiary of British Airways, launched a new route to the northern Italian city of Venice (VCE) on 17 September. Six weekly services are now operated with the airline’s 98-seat E-190s, but British Airways already offers 21 and 11 weekly frequencies to Venice respectively as part of its mainline operations at London Gatwick and London Heathrow airports. While further 26 weekly flights are offered by easyJet, Monarch and Thomson from Gatwick, British Airways does not face direct competition on the route to Venice from London City.
